Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Canon 85mm f/1.2L II USM
This is a remarkable lens and arguably the best portrait lens made. The lens remains incredibly sharp when wide open and blurs the out-of-focus background beautifully. It’s even possible to shoot in near darkness or candlelight, and the depth of field when wide open is so narrow that you must often stop down to f/1.4 to get the subject’s entire face into focus. It’s a hefty piece of glass, almost as wide as it is long, with a “deliberate” focus speed (meaning it is really not suited for fast action or sports shooting).
Like all very wide-aperture lenses, it will certainly need a bit of autofocus microadjustment to give the best images on your camera. Without that, these lenses will almost certainly back or front focus a bit on your body wide open.Please note: This lens focus system is completely electronic, meaning there are no mechanical elements. The focus ring on this lens will rotate freely without adjusting focus unless the lens is mounted to a Canon SLR camera that is turned on. Therefore, it is not compatible with video adapters, and trying to “pull focus” for video work will not work.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.
On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.
In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
